Effect of Pressure-Controlled Ventilation-Volume Guaranteed on One-Lung Ventilation in Elderly Patients Undergoing Thoracotomy.
CONCLUSIONS Compared with VCV, PCV-VG mode reduced airway pressure in patients undergoing thoracotomy and also decreased the release of NE and reduced inflammatory response and lung injury. We conclude that PCV-VG mode can protect the lung function of elderly patients undergoing thoracotomy. PMID: 32092047 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: We concluded that utilization of the MOTA technique was safe and effective for providing decompression/fusion of traumatic TBF. PMID: 33024603 [PubMed]

Authors: Kim S, Cho YH, Park PW, Lee YT, Jun TG, Kim WS, Sung K, Yang JH, Chung S Abstract A 59-year-old man presented for possible durable ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation. He had previously been diagnosed with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, a ventricular septal defect, an atrial septal defect, pulmonary valve stenosis, and aortic valve regurgitation. In the previous 22 years, he had undergone palliative cardiac surgery 3 times. VAD implantation as a bridge to transplantation was planned. Owing to severe adhesions, mesocardia, a left ascending aorta, and moderate aortic reg...
The prevalence of heart failure (HF) continues to increase, and its economic effect is significant in the United States and globally. During the past 2 years, a number of high-quality clinical trials were published with the aim of addressing different stages of the disease process and improving outcomes for patients with preserved and depressed ejection fraction (EF). In this review, data from these trials are summarized and critically appraised. There are several important findings from these studies, including, but not limited to, the benefit of dapagliflozin in HF with reduced EF, sacubitril-valsartan in acute decompens...
CONCLUSIONS: The 4-year cost of surgical resection for NSCLC was substantial and increased with pathologic stage. Among Stage I lobectomy patients, those selected for minimally invasive surgery had lower costs, particularly through 90 days. Potential avenues for improving the value of surgical resection include judicious use of post-operative intensive care and earlier detection and treatment of disease.

Rates of long-term survival for children with pulmonary metastatic osteosarcoma are low, and complete surgical resection of all visible pulmonary metastases is necessary for long term survival. Surgical approaches for metastasectomy include thoracotomy and thoracoscopy, with the approach chosen influenced by training and institutional bias. Thoracotomy with manual palpation of lung surfaces can identify nodules not seen on preoperative imaging, but no clear survival benefit has been demonstrated compared to complete thoracoscopic resection of all visible nodules.

Male C57BL/6J (10 weeks) were subjected to an open-chest ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) SHAM procedure in order to examine the effects of this surgery alone in producing cardiac inflammation. The procedure consisted of thoracotomy and...

AbstractFibrovascular polyps are rare benign epithelial neoplasia of the cervical esophagus. Usually they are large and frequently require a thoracotomy/thoracoscopy. This is a case report of an elderly lady with a large Fibrovascular polyp who had anemia and weight loss due to dysphagia, managed by rendezvous technique.
Resumo Fundamento A interven ção percutânea em pacientes com disfunção de prótese biológica mitral apresenta-se como uma alternativa ao tratamento cirúrgico convencional. Objetivo Relatar a primeira experiência brasileira de implante transcateter de bioprótese valve-in-valve mitral via transeptal (TMVIV-via transept al). Métodos Foram incluídos pacientes portadores de disfunção de bioprótese cirúrgica submetidos ao TMVIV-transeptal em 12 hospitais brasileiros. Foram considerados estatisticamente significativos valores de p
